All realtracks here, apart from the vocal and the drum kit. Mixed in Logic Pro.

Boner McPharlin's Moll

Cruising down the highway
My girl by my side
Ocean far below us
Ocean deep and wide
Deep and wide

My girl sits in silence
She don’t know what for
Silence is a virtue
When you’re running from the law
From the law

Watch her in the water
Watch her get undressed
Freedom is a pretty thing
I know I think I guess
I think I guess

Cruising down the highway
Shark nets hunt me down
Coppers in the shadows
The cops who run this town
Hunt me down

My girl she knows nothing
I pray it stays that way
Her innocence is a flower
If it only lasts a day
Lasts a day

A shark is to the ocean
What greed is to a man
The strong alone survive
The rest of us are lambs
The rest of us are lambs

You’ll read it in the papers
Boner’s on the run
When I disappear forever
You’ll know the [*****] won
They won

Here are the Realtracks:
RealTracks in style: 1732:Bass, Electric, TexasBluesRockFunky Ev16 090
RealTracks in song: 2619:Organ, Rhythm Funk Ev 100
RealTracks in song: 2525:Guitar, Electric, Rhythm FunkWahWahChords Ev16 100
RealTracks in song: 2403:Guitar, Acoustic, Rhythm FunkyFolk Ev16 110
RealTracks in song: ~586:Harmonica, Background Blues Roadhouse Ev 120

I started with the _TXBLZFN.STY style but customised the instruments for the song eg the harmonica is not in the original style (but suited it so well!).

Terrific groove and cool lyrics.
The back track is very nicely layered ( love the
harp & B3 together!).
Your vocal has an interesting treatment and echo: I`d be interested in how it was achieved.

Thanks Scott and Robert. The vocal is radically filtered top and bottom for a telephone-like effect. There's a bit of distortion and widening on there too. The echoes are a throw delay automated to emphasise certain words in the song. It took me a while to get the sound I wanted but ultimately was easily achieved with Waves CLA Effects plugin.

Great mix.

Howdy,

This is really different from you! Love the vocal effect and the funky beat. Cool song and a pleasant surprise! Best to you,

Alan

PS: I like the way you used the wah-wah for the lead break - interesting!

Alan

Cheers Rob and Alan. Yeah a fair bit of experimentation for this production. I found four wahs from the same family amongst the Realtracks and used them all. The most melodic I saved for the instrumental choruses. I considered other lead options but thought nah keep it funky from head to toe.

Oh yeah, we love it when a forum regular takes you to a new music place.

The vocal effects and wahs are both creative and effective.

And the dark lyric is great.

It's literally ALL good.

Superbly cool!!!

Cool song!! Has a great feel. I really like that megaphone style on the vocal for this song. Harmonica works great! Nice job!! Take care. Greg

Beginners Help - Muting the Melody Notation

Visit our Beginners Forum, and you'll notice our amazing Forum Community helping out new program users!

Like this recent post regarding Muting the Melody Notation: http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=458716 - Forum user Matt Finley did a great job of answering the new program user!

Our Beginners Forum really is a great resource for new program users!

Q: When I have entered chords and notation for a song, is it possible to mute the notation and just have the chords playing? This would be helpful for when I just want the chord backing track but want to read the notation.

A: There are several ways to do this. The easiest is probably to use the Mixer window and change the volume slider to zero for the Melody track. Or, hit the Mute icon on the Mixer for the Melody Track.

Another way, with more control rather than all or nothing, is to press F5 at the measure where you want to mute, and select mute or change the volume to zero. Later, press F5 and select Return to Normal, or change the volume back.

#TechTipTuesday - Band-in-a-Box® Patch Updates

If you're ever experiencing an issue with your Band-in-a-Box program, make sure you have the most recent patch update for your version - this can be done at http://www.pgmusic.com/support.updates.win.htm.

Patch updates are released frequently, and are created by our development team to fix any reported bugs, tweak existing features within the program, update demos and other files as needed, and more!

To find out which version of the program you have, visit Help | About Band-in-a-Box within the program. You will see the full version number listing as:
Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2018 (512)

The number in parentheses is the build number. As you can see, my Band-in-a-Box is up to date and will continue to stay that way because I've selected "Automatically check for updates every 7 days" within the Help | Check for Updates.... option (you can set the number of days to a different number). This window will also look to see if you're version is up to date, so you don't technically have to visit http://www.pgmusic.com/support.updates.win.htm if you didn't want to!

Once you've installed your patch update (make sure the program is closed when you're doing this), give it another try - if you are still experiencing the same issue you can report it by contacting us directly, or you can post your result to the Forum thread that also announces the patch update, like our recent Band-in-a-Box 2018 Build 512 Update (Feb 15) post.
